55 Main Street
Open all day
This is a Jennings pub in a Jennings town (it's brewed about 200 yards from here). As such is serves a good selection of Jennings beers, but also a couple of guest ales. On this occasion they were Coach House Innkeepers and Cottage Rocket Ale.
There are two real fires, one front one back. The back room is cosy with a small wooden bar but a large fireplace in a stone surround. There's a fruit machine and lots of jugs on a shelf round the room. A ceiling fan keeps the cool in summer.
This is really a split level pub with the toilets outside and up two steps (not good for the disabled). The front room has two areas, to the right is the bar area with a few small tables and stools plus bench seats. To the left is an alcove area with real fire and largr tables with comfy seating. It can get a little dark in the pub, but more than made up for by the beer quality (though requests for sparkler removal and top up were met with quizzical looks). There is piped music but it's not too intrusive.
Décor throughout is Laura Ashley/Liberty style.
Food is served and is good value though nothing for vegetarians. Sunday roast & kids menu.
Naughty after hours drinking for locals too!
